Demonstration Support Committee


The DC Demonstration Support Committee is a network of lawyers, legal workers, and law students who provide legal support for political activists, protesters, and movements for social change. DC Demonstration Support Committee members provide Know Your Rights trainings, Legal Observer trainings, assistance in setting up temporary legal offices and legal support structures, and materials for supporting activists engaged in mass protests and civil disobedience.

If you’re planning an action with a high risk of arrest and you would like to request a training or legal observers, you can email the DC Demonstration Support Committee at
